Lunch with a Laureate: Richard Schrock

Presented by the MIT Museum and the Cambridge Science Festival


When he was eight, Richard Schrock's older brother gave him a chemistry set. He went on to win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

How great is that?

“Science is the future. All major advances come down to science and scientific research. If you think about what you enjoy today, it’s all based on science.”
